Framlingham in 2010

Daisy Cooper in the Prince of IndiaDaisy Cooper was the Lib-Dem candidate for Suffolk Coastal in last April's general election.  While she was waiting for her take away in Framlingham last night we found out she definitely wants to stand next time, doesn't think the coalition might break, is busy helping the Suffolk Lib-Dems organise for next year's council elections and likes the sound of roller derby (she mentioned it first).

When we moved to Stately Terrace in 1998 we knew very little about Framlingham.  The easy going American charm of our neighbour Gene Waters, and the surprising friendliness of his and his wife Sally's female ginger cat George, helped us to feel comfortable in a new place.  Sadly Gene passed away Friday, the funeral is 1:15pm this Monday at St Michael's.

atm plate style skimmer- pic contributedThere were three cash point skimmers found near the coast last week and one on the Framlingham Barclays in 2008.  Though the police have pointed out they do vary in appearance they seem to come in two flavours; throat and plate and both have a pinhole camera mounted above the keypad to capture the pin ... nasty.

Nobody puts baby on the corner  Saxtead Road near Framlingham  Near Debenham

Poo that's confusing!  Part of the Central Suffolk parliamentary constituency includes part of the Suffolk Coastal district council constituency but the Central Suffolk election is administered by the Mid-Suffolk district council.  Thanks to Vicky Smy at Mid Suffolk for prompt media accreditation at the last minute.

Three legged woman outside The CrownSuffolk's now on Google Streetview (click and drag the little man at the top of the zoom control top left) and already it's a slightly historical document ... Gosia quite rightly points out there's a three legged woman outside the Framlingham Crown.

Walk of Thoughts?  We know what our Walk of Thoughts at Framlingham Castle thoughts were at Framlingham castle this morning in weather so filthy even the brave St John's boys and girl were cowering in their ambulance ... but despite this a very decent turn out in support of the St Elizabeth Hospice and as always bad weather didn't stop the dogs enjoying themselves.

A ShelterBox is just that, a big plastic trunk containing a tent for 10, blankets, water filtration, cooking pots ShelterBox at Help For Haiti, tools and colouring books and crayons for the kids to get life started again.  To pay for more ShelterBoxes Juan Romero organised Help For Haiti at Framlingham College last night.  A cracking bun fight where we saw Space Cakes and the Low House Blues Band cranking it out (Derek said he'd earlier really enjoyed Laura Wright singing classical to Colouring books in a ShelterBox piano accompaniment), the Dragoman donated holiday in South America went for some £1,400 in the auction and the bar was just about drunk dry of Earl Soham Brewery donated beer (we just managed to get some Tolly Roger).  All of this means over £10,000, very possibly over £12,000 was raised; that's at least 20 ShelterBoxes, 200 people seriously helped, and by god those poor souls in Haiti need and deserve help.
